Leaving Reunion

And still have signal with the local sim in the iPad. It was a “Gate start” just motor out of Harbour, set your sails 1 nm out and take your own start time, supposed to be between 10 and 11 but almost all the boats left early – we started at 09.58 and only 3 boats behind. There is no wind so we are motoring in the sunshine. 1400 miles to Richards Bay in South Africa, we may have to stop in bay in southern Madagascar to avoid crossing the Agulhas current in bad weather. We had a great week in Reunion, it’s very French, uses euro and the phone even works. Despite much of it being so steep and mountainous Reunion is more developed than Mauritius but the public toilets are much better in Mauritius.
